tl dr; Little difference between 800mhz and 1066mhz RAM timings.
So what's the difference between running my DDR2 RAM at 800mhz VS 1066mhz? Hardly anything at all.
Super Pi @ 1 million: 23 seconds for both speeds.
3DMark @ 800: 14040
3DMark @ 1066: 14073
Nothing to scream about. I'm Currently running 2x2GB modules. I have an additional set of 2X2GB modules that I removed because I couldn't get them stable @ 1066. I realize now that the difference is negligible. I could've just left the modules in and clocked all 8GB at 800mhz and enjoy the stability.
Managed to pass Memtest @ 1066 with 4 modules only for it to crash.
With 8gb @ 800 super pi remained at 23 seconds. 3dmark went up a bit:
Which makes it all the more derp.
Starting to get a little dusty in there. Ram slots all loaded with G.SKILL F2-8500CL5D. Been enjoying the somewhat visible 640GB WD Caviar Black as OS drive for some time now:
Next we have a pointless mood lighting shot. The exhaust fan ended up crapping out shortly after. Light's up but fan no longer spins. Got a suitable 140mm fan to replace it. I also unplugged the dual 60mm jet engines from hell. Going to get a PCI bracket fan controller. Crank those bitches way down.
